We had one fox sparrow show up today, eating millet. This is our earliest record of one, since 1993. Most of our fox sparrow visits are in Jan and Feb. Also today, 2 pair of wood ducks showed up on our back woodland pond. The red-breasted nuthatch continues, taking shelled peanuts and black oil sunflower seeds. We spotted our FOS sapsucker today in the woods. One winter goldfinch on the sunflower seeds also.
And of course, our zillions of house finches. No purples yet.
